Annamarie’s Reading

Picture Books & Readers:

Everything Else:

Note: Didn’t read as much this week. I got through my newest stack of picture books and a few longer titles, but my graphic novels and first chapter books are staring at me hopefully from my nightstand.

Make sure to stop by on Tuesdays for short reviews of some of these titles!

Stats for the Week:

  • 25 Books Read This Week
    • 15 Books with Diverse Main Character (60%)
    • 8 Books by Diverse Authors (32%)
    • 8 Books by Own Voices Authors (32%) (to the best of my knowledge)

This week’s reading highlights:

Michala’s Reading

Note: Annamarie and I had planned to take a friends vacation this year, but because Covid that did not come to fruition and I wound up with a LOT of vacation days. So to eat up some of that time, I took this past week off for my birthday and roadtripped home to Chicagoland. I honestly read 1 book, and am probably gonna have to read it again in a few weeks because brain retention during vacation is for naught. But look at some of the fun stuff from this week!

    These books sound great, especially Black Brother, Black Brother and If You Go With Your Goat to Vote! I’m glad you had a fun vacation, Michala! Thanks for the great post!

    If You Go with Your Goat to Vote is new to me. I usually try to get a pile to read around our house just before an election, so I’m glad to learn of a new one. Thanks for sharing!

    • That was a fun one! I think I was expecting it to me be more about how elections work, but instead it focuses on the different ways a grown-up might vote (with their child assisting of course!), which is still super helpful and a great way to introduce even the youngest to what they might experience at a polling place. Thanks for stopping by our blog!
